Here's a great start as well as a good reference guide to at least a few very knowledgable people's opinions on the tour.

Personally, when I went through this tour, I started by going in order from the beginning, spending a couple days with each show until I got a good idea about what I liked about each show (e.g. setlist order, outstanding versions of songs or sequences, etc.) After that, I went through and picked out my favorite version(s) of each song that was played on the tour, a repeatative process but enjoyable. After that I took a break from it for a while but recently, I've just sort of had the playlist for the tour on shuffle to see if I hear something I may not have picked up on before when removing each song from it's concert surroundings.

Have fun with however you decide to do it, there are some amazing moments in this tour.

Holy Doodle that E72 Notebook post could take me a year to get through :D

I may be trying to over-analyze it...I mean, I like the idea of giving each song a rating, but find it hard to do, because I like to have something to measure it against (I don't know if that makes sense).

It may be because of my listening habits...I generally find most songs "good" until something comes along and knocks me on my ass....like:

8/6/71 Bertha
8/6/74 Eyes of the World
2/23/74 Here Comes Sunshine

Maybe I should just listen and wait for those knockout moments :D

Clif's E72 stuff is real good, at least from what I hear, his observations are spot on . I am on my second go through (Radio Lux. next ), and I find a way to keep it somewhat clear , is to break the tour up by nation , and look at those shows, as a group .
